Fuerteventura Holidays 

The enormous sand dunes of the Corralejo National Park in Fuerteventura are so vast, you’d be forgiven for thinking you are in the middle of the Sahara desert. A land of colourful and proud Canarian culture, exhilarating water sports and an interesting history, Fuerteventura is a place you’ll want to return to time and time again. With great places to stay and deals on All Inclusive Fuerteventura holidays, there really is no excuse not to explore this incredible island.

24 °C

Like all of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura takes some of the scorching heat from the Sahara but the swift north east winds cool the coastlines down. The average temperature is around 24°C during the summer months.

4.5 hours

Fuerteventura airport is in the town of El Matorral, which is just 5km from the capital of Puerto del Rosario. The resort of Corralejo is about a 45 minute drive from the airport and Costa Caleta is only 8km.

Book a cheap holiday to Fuerteventura with Airtours and enjoy sunning yourself by the beach before dipping your toes in the warmest waters.

Sitting on the edge of its national park, the resort of Correlejo is well worth a visit and is famed for its desert like dunes of the softest Sahara sand. Or if you’re looking for a destination designed to give you absolutely everything you need on your holiday, visit Costa Caleta along the east coast of Fuerteventura. 

There are plenty of historical sites in Fuerteventura, where you can learn more about the local history. You’ll also find lots of water sports to enjoy on the many beaches. If it’s fun days out you’re after, check out the zoos and waterparks that are dotted around the island. 

The locals of Fuerteventura are very proud of their heritage and are keen to preserve it for generations. There are many museums and art galleries in La Oliva near Corralejo including the very interesting Casa de los Coroneles. This 19th century museum and art gallery is dedicated to telling the stories of the local inhabitants known as Los Majoreros. The Salt museum in Las Salinas shows how vital the land and sea was for the economical and cultural development of the islands.

 

Fuerteventura has loads of great beaches, so there are plenty of opportunities for diving, surfing, canoeing, snorkelling and more. Golf enthusiasts will love a leisurely sun-kissed game facing the sea in the state of the art 18 hole golf club in Costa Antigua. There are no rules on your beach holiday in Fuerteventura.

It’s always good to have a few fun days out planned on your holiday, should you ever fancy a break from the beach or if the weather’s a bit dodgy. Oasis Park in La Lajita, near Las Palmas, is a great day out for all, whether you’ve got little ones with you, are on holiday as a couple or just a group of mates. This zoo and botanical park has more than 300 animals including colourful parrots, reptiles, performing sea lions and cheeky lemurs. It even gives visitors the chance to have one-to- one animal encounters including the opportunity to swim with the adorable sea lions. If you’re looking to get wet and wild, the Acua Park in Corralejo is a great day out, especially for children who need to let off a little steam! The lazy river and winding water slides are a definite must do.
